The Elephant's Child: How the Elephant Got His Trunk






These are some images from an e-book I illustrated for the Barnes and Noble nookcolor a few months ago. It's based off the old Rudyard Kipling story about how a baby elephant got his trunk, and there's also some great audio narration on it, too. It showed up briefly in the NYTimes video review of the nookcolor (woo-hoo!), and you can also get an idea of how the audio narration sounds here.




so if you have a nookcolor, you can download the book for free HERE!!! (you can also get it via the nook kids app for the ipad or just check it out at a Barnes and Noble bookstore.)

...and now back to more mindless doodles. :P

Woaa really nice illustrations, Davin! Loving the color, and yes they're charming!
Super awesome stuff on the previous posts too. Whacha talkin bout as 'mindless doodles'? Mine were the mindless and meaningless ones.

@kartika - haha, my doodles are mindless for the most part, but those are the most fun! lovin' your stuff - although you might find them meaningless, i feel like they're little snapshots of life. :)
